Rehabilitating Fascists Meta | Politics
This is all pretty difficult to talk about, because I don't want to be mistaken for someone wanting to create a social backdoor for fascists, since this is something I've spent the last 1-2 years fighting against.
But on the other hand, I also need to talk about an uncomfortable topic of how leftist spaces have a problem with narcissism, and how that can be abused to harm those deemed "acceptable targets"
re: Rehabilitating Fascists Meta | Politics | Fedi Meta
And this is important to speak up on and have a discussion about, because the trauma that this moral narcissism creates is real. The Fediverse drama that happened late last year is proof of that.
Speaking in personal terms, dealing with people who had weaponized my own past against me has been traumatizing each time it happened. And it's not because of the questioning and the doubt...
...it's because their goal is to make me hate myself and make me feel inherently, eternally and irrevocably inferior, it's because they feel entitled to verbally strip-search me and deny my humanity.
